Lakeland based supermarket chain, Publix, announced Thursday that the Publix Pharmacy administered its 1 millionth dose of COVID-19 vaccine in Florida. More than 140,000 additional doses have been administered at Publix locations in Georgia, South Carolina and Virginia.
“When Publix was approached to assist in administering these life-saving vaccines, we didn’t hesitate to say ‘Yes’ because we believe it is a privilege to care for our communities during a time of need,” said Publix CEO Todd Jones. “I’m extremely proud of our pharmacy, store and support teams for their hard work over the past 10 weeks. Their dedication and commitment to service have played a large part in the success of our efforts.”
